Spirit airlines, the self proclaimed “Home of the Bare Fare,” may be pushing it with their new $69 round trip advertising campaign.
To celebrate the first flights of their 69th aircraft, the budget carrier is offering super cheap fares for travelers booking Tuesday through midnight.
Leaving little to the imagination, the company released a promotional statement:
(WARNING: The below text may be offensive and is not recommended for all audiences.)
“We’ve been waiting to hit 69 planes for years. It’s our favorite number – ever since we were twelve and found that magazine under our brother’s bed (the one with the fantastic articles). #69 is perfect: just the right size, with a cockpit that’s in your face (because it’s bright yellow). Use your mouth to spread the word: Spirit is in an even better position to get you where you’re going. We’re popping an epic Bare Fare in celebration! $69.00* round trip!”
Many may be left wondering if this is real (not a hoax put on by a pre-pubescent teen.)
“It’s not atypical for us to have these types of ads. Spirit isn’t your typical airline,” a spokesman for the airline told Fox News station KMSP.
Unfortunately, the airline has already upset more than few of its travelers.
